Art Quilt Maps by Valerie Goodwin
I was so inspired by Valerie Goodwin's process that I hunted down some cotton crinoline (we now carry it at The Stitchin' Post) and tried out a sample. The crinoline is like a layer of stability to work the surface piecing and embellishment on. It gives your piece stability without being bulky or stiff.
This is a very fun process and I want to dive in on a map quilt next. I am in the process of inviting Valerie to teach for us here in Sisters in 2015! Stay tuned!
Happy Exploring, Jean
